Aftermath.....

So I am a wreck this week after a hectic SF cocktail week schedule of events, with an unreasonable amount of work and an unadvisable amount of drinking. 
I'd like to thank Mr. Eben Freeman for coming out and mixing up some concoctions for the lucky few who were able to make it out to the Haight. Got to try some really great infusions and cocktails featuring rum from the kind folks at Ron Zacapa, and some Sagatiba cachaca jams as well. 
It was great to have some out-of-town talent around to share the excitement surrounding a robust scene of local bars and restaurants who are truly doing world class work right here in SF.
I hope that this cocktail week can grow to bring even more of that around, as I feel it is a chance to showcase our work and share ideas and inspiration with a more national and international audience.
I'd also like to thank Erik Ellestad and all who joined us for a bustling Savoy Stomp on Sunday night. It's rewarding to see so many people taking chances on some interesting cocktails and celebrating the history of the craft. We appreciate the support (and the patience).
So now as I turn to Alka-Seltzer, Ibuprofen, and bed rest for a day or two, I am starting to ponder some summertime concoctions to try out.
This week, might see some smoked ginger margarita, rhubarb and pink peppercorn rickeys,  cardamom-rose petal-cachaca-lemonade, who knows.... Got to finish laundry first.
Check out the twitter to find out.
Cheers.

Had a great time at the Savoy Stomp, thanks for the hard work to all involved. Cocktail Week was certainly inspiring and I am looking forward to hitting up the brand new Inner Sunset Farmer's Market for some seasonal delicacies to concoct with.
